Prayers for the brave

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, September 02, 2014

ALL Fijian peacekeepers captured by militant rebel forces in the Golan Heights need to be released immediately.

This was the call made by National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad while addressing supporters during a rally at Lautoka's Shirley Park over the weekend.

"This rally has been somewhat shadowed by the great pain which relates to the captivity of our brave young men who are serving in the peacekeeping duties in Golan Heights," he said.

"Please allow me to share our prayers for our brave men in uniform as they face a great uncertainty in that area.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and we join the military commander and United Nations Secretary-general in calling for the immediate release of all Fijian troops."

Prof Prasad said the rally was a platform for party members to meet supporters from Lautoka.

"As we come to the last two weeks of campaigning for this historic election, let me point out to you and the people of Fiji the choice we have in this election."
